Re: All or nothing?

Mate, I don't think I'm picking and choosing what to believe and what not to believe based on convenience. I accept, believe and draw comfort from those principles of the Gospel that my heart and mind tell me are true. In that regard I think I'm doing exactly what Moroni 10:3-5 would suggest, and e...

Re: Amy Adams and Mormonism

I think Amy Adams is fantastic. in very important ways, she draws from her own experience, including the wide-eyed innocence of church members, to convey authenticity in her acting. I have to think that her "enchanted" princess was entirely based upon being the perfect mormon girl...

Re: Sorry more questions & my experience today

Of course I answered "yes". then he said, "how can you christians believe in cannabalism?" I responded, "whe...

Re: Monitored and Watched

The brethren have defined tithing in a way to allow each member to consult the Holy Ghost to determine what is a full tithe and that no leader is to expound on the Church's definition. It is not the Bishop's place to establish what a full tithe is but rather to hold people to being honest with them...

Re: Monitored and Watched

Whether that means I adjust my donations upwards again, or affirm my comfort with my current position is up to me I guess. Exactly. I also would suggest strongly paying it straight to SLC - and, if you are asked about it, telling your Bishop explicitly that you were hurt, deeply, by how everything ...

Re: Monitored and Watched

The temple recommend question asks only if you pay a full tithe. Period. There should not be any follow-up if you answer, "Yes." If there is follow-up, like, "I don't think the numbers I've seen meet the requirement of a full tithe," a simple, "Yes, I am a full tithe-payer," is supposed to be enoug...

Re: Monitored and Watched

Kristmace, I had a long talk tonight with my former bishop, whose wife is going through a faith crisis right now -- we're very close. I asked him if he had received during his tenure from 1998 to 2005 any advice from the Stake President to investigate someone for their beliefs, and he said no. He to...
